Deportation and current u.s. policies

Today's political climate reflects a tense attitude toward immigration and deportation as a whole. While this topic can set the stage for a profound debate, many Americans forget that there are human lives severely affected by strict U.S. policies. For Arizona families who have experienced such scares of deportation, there can seem few places to turn in times of need. Recent changes in regulations have caused countless families to fear that their overall quality of life may soon change for the worse.

CNN reported last month that the Supreme Court had made changes to the nation's federal laws regarding deportation. Now, Congress must address the loopholes that prevented the removal of aliens convicted of dangerous crimes. Previously, lawmakers had criticized the country's deportation laws, calling them unconstitutionally vague. Arguing that the previous measures of the law were "flawed," CNN appears to agree with the recent changes, claiming that the grounds for deportation have long been overly broad. Others in support of these modifications hope that the changes will further protect law-abiding immigrants who, in the past, were violated of their rights when deported on wrongful grounds.

Of course, each situation can vary greatly from the next, and many families struggle with the details of immigration guidelines. The official website for the U.S. government clarifies that there may be some exceptions when it comes to deportation. For example, immigrants who feel their civil rights have been violated may decide to file a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security. Immigrants facing potential removal proceedings may also apply for a green card by going through the adjustment of status process. In some situations, immigrants who express fear of returning to their native country may apply for asylum; after this step, immigrants may then discuss the situation with an asylum officer. The current outlook on U.S. immigration policies may be uncertain, but there are a number of steps families can take to remain in the place they call home.
